Jordan FM arrives in Ramallah for talks with Palestinian leader
Islam News – Jordan’s Foreign Minister Ayman al-Safadi arrived in the West Bank city of Ramallah on Tuesday for talks with Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas.
Earlier Tuesday, Wasel Abu Yousef, a member of the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO)’s Executive Committee, said talks were underway to coordinate positions between Egypt, Jordan, Palestine and the White House, as US Secretary of State Antony Blinken began a Middle East tour to bolster a recent cease-fire between Israel and Palestinian factions in the Gaza Strip.
Abu Yousef said the discussions aim to open a political horizon to end the decades-long Israeli occupation of the Palestinian territories.
Blinken arrived in Israel on Tuesday as part of a tour that also includes Ramallah, Jordan and Egypt.
According to Ned Price, the spokesperson for the US State Department, Blinken will meet with Abbas, Prime Minister Mohammad Shtayyeh, and other senior officials from the Palestinian Authority, before moving on to visit Amman and Cairo.
